How Does A Web App Differ From A Native App?

The Basics

Attendees choosing the web app for your event will benefit from the same content and interactive options available through the EventMobi Universal App on iOS and Android devices (or your Branded App if your event has one).

The web app is installed by accessing into a browser. Users can add a home screen bookmark to quickly relaunch the app when needed. The EventMobi Universal App is instead installed via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Your unique Event Code is then used to search for your event to access the Event Space.

Note: Only the EventMobi App and Branded Apps will be able to receive push notifications. 

Custom Branded Apps and Multi-Event App

If you have opted to create a single Branded App or a Branded Multi-Event App, then a different process and timeline to distributing your event information will apply. These apps will need to be submitted and hosted under your own developer account, which may require a timeline of 4-8 weeks in total. 

If you are hosting just one event that will need to be made accessible from the app stores, then you will need to ensure that the app branding is complete, and content has been added to any visible sections in your Event Space before submitting for approval. When this step is complete, you will have a file created from our Branded Apps Team which can be submitted to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Alternatively, you can choose to distribute your branded app privately if need be. 

If you will be hosting multiple events throughout the year, then a Branded Multi-Event App will be established for you, where the information for your various events can be accessed from one single app. In this case, a file will also need to be created by our Branded App Team to allow you to submit the app and make it available for download within the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
